Fresh, funny and unique to 21st Century TV
5 November 2016 | by epicintronSee all my reviews

Love this character! She's real, refreshing, constantly evolving and like no other currently on television. I am eager to see what else she gets into. The scenarios are endless because this character has so much unmined territory. I only hope the network and the viewing public give her the chance. So far she has dealt with the complexities of male/female relationships for millennials from the educated black female perspective, how "girlfriends" (platonic female friends) keep you sane, and trying to remain true to oneself in a hostile work environment. Unlike "Girlfriends", a comedy about four black women that aired for eight seasons beginning in 2000, "Insecure" breaks it (real life) down. We are allowed inside Issa's head and can feel her insecurities, the doubts that make her second guess herself and act, often, foolishly. We also see how she shakes the foolishness off and finds a way of working it out. The language and situations are often raw--in your face, but that is an aspect of its realness. "Insecure" brings "Girlfriends" all the way into the 21st century void of the restrictions, mediation and second-guessing that the Tracee Ellis Ross sit-com was subject to. Hopefully, America's viewing public is finally ready for it.
